Its damage per shot is equal to that of the Staff of Destruction, but its increased fire rate makes its DPS in between the Staff of Horror and the Staff of Necrotic Arcana, against an enemy with either 0 or more than 60 defense. It also has one of the best range of all staves, tied with the Tezcacoatl’s Tail, being able to hit enemies at the same range as wands. It has its uses for Wine Cellars because you can easily land a lot of shots on the boss with extra safety.

This staff is a great choice for newer players, for it’s very easy to get and it’s a safer choice as you can get more shots in without having to get as near to the bosses.

This item was added in Build 122 (Feb 2012).

Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 320.
